It seems I regained consciousness in the midst of yet another one of this island's illogical phenomena.

Thankfully it's taken until now to get the liquor stains and glass shards out of the carpet. I'm quite content to remain here, inside my home until whatever unearthly rule this place conducts itself by decides to take me back to my proper time and place.

[sigh.]

I wish I hadn't woken up.

Do you not eat, or are you relying on someone else to serve you food?
darth_veda on August 26th, 2010 08:07 pm (UTC)
I need very little to sustain myself, and enough leftover money to live comfortably for quite a while.
Yoshiya "Joshua" Kiryu: and then you XXX him in the XXX ♪fallingjunkyard on August 27th, 2010 02:18 am (UTC)
Is that so? You must have quite the bazaar inside your home if you intend to actually use that money.

Do not patronize me.

I fully intend to leave the house for the bare necessities. I simply do not have any interest in mingling with the general public. I've lost what few contacts I had here, and if the timeline is this erratic, I'd rather not waste my time.

That's a shame! I'm sure you'd be quite the conversationalist.

Care to elaborate on being "pulled back and forth through time and space"?
darth_veda on August 28th, 2010 03:46 am (UTC)
I've been here long enough to recognize sarcasm, thank you.

In any case, I arrived here nearly two years ago, on this timeline. Here, I met a man who had been killed in action on my timeline. We spent a year here, and suddenly I was pulled back to my own world where no time had passed. That man was still dead there.

I spent four years in that dimension, going about my business as usual, When without warning I was back here, where only a week had passed, and again that dead man was waiting for me.

I honestly don't know how the weaker members of the population don't loose their minds.

Yoshiya "Joshua" Kiryu: caught my interest ♪fallingjunkyard on August 28th, 2010 11:37 am (UTC)
Is sarcasm uncommon in your world or is that just a result of hermit-like behaviour?

The time disjoint is quite fascinating; perhaps Rivelata has its own arbitary timeline. Who knows, maybe by the time you go home again, whatever important business you had would have taken care of itself.
darth_veda on August 29th, 2010 06:14 am (UTC)
I would be pleased if they managed to accomplish everything on their own. However, if time goes on without me, I fear the worst if I am not there to oversee my group's progress.

And I am not a hermit. I wish you'd stop making fun of me.
Yoshiya "Joshua" Kiryu: butterfly eyes just for you ♪fallingjunkyard on August 29th, 2010 02:09 pm (UTC)
People are remarkably adaptive when thrust into difficult situations. Unless they're your everyday unfocused, weak-willed person. My, I never knew you thought so little of your group!

Yet another? Illogical phenomena are a staple of the island then, I take it?
darth_veda on August 26th, 2010 08:08 pm (UTC)
They are. And I'm sorry to say that they are almost never convenient.
hattersghost on August 27th, 2010 04:42 am (UTC)
Ahh, what a strange sort of get-away these people have organized for us. Have any sort of investigations been made about those strange happenings?
darth_veda on August 27th, 2010 04:53 am (UTC)
As far as I'm concerned, there is nothing to investigate.

For over a year I've been stranded in this place-- I've been pulled back and forth through time and space on more than one occasion after landing here. I've seen many acquaintances from my time come and go, I've seen things from "other worlds" that cannot possibly exist.

There is no explanation other than that we have been pulled through an incongruity in the flow of time. It's infuriating.

hattersghost on August 27th, 2010 05:08 am (UTC)
You witness the existence of things that cannot possibly exist, and you say there's nothing to investigate? On the contrary, I think that makes it an absolute necessity, rather than simply a good idea.
darth_veda on August 27th, 2010 05:47 am (UTC)
You are free to conduct your own investigation, but I am almost certain that you will reach no logical conclusions.
hattersghost on August 27th, 2010 10:47 pm (UTC)
My...

I wonder if all of the island's long-term residents come down with this particular disease.
darth_veda on August 28th, 2010 02:37 am (UTC)
If you are implying that the island has made me pessimistic, you are mistaken.

I have simply faced the..."reality" of the situation. The reality being that there is just no method or order to any of this.
hattersghost on August 29th, 2010 10:37 pm (UTC)
Pessimistic, apathetic - either works, I suppose. There is never really no order, just more and more creative brands of order.

You don't sound real happy to be here. Can't imagine why. All the sunshine and coconut drinks a guy could want!
darth_veda on August 28th, 2010 02:42 am (UTC)
Some people have important things to attend to outside of this madness.

I wasn't created to waste my life away playing in the sand.

Created, huh? Now that's a turn of phrase you don't hear much outside the churches.
darth_veda on August 28th, 2010 03:33 am (UTC)
Don't lump me in with that crowd. All human beings are created at some point, be it by natural means or otherwise.

Some are made with the predisposition to better the world with their efforts. Others spend their lives basking in the annuity of those people.
